“Guy was there first.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

In the context of Diners, Drive Inns and Dives this place is definitely a dive. One I would go to regularly if I lived in Alb. Sophia's was recommended by a local at Farina. New Mexican food is special and this place does as good as any.
We had a late breakfast so not very busy. Service was quick and very friendly as we conversed with the cook and staff. Not much for looks but proves some of the best food is found in old gas stations

No liquor serve but the food is good. Try the chille rellenos tell them not to put the tomatillo sauce it is fine with out it. Their pico de gallo is excellent ask to be giving some. Bring your own beer :)

“YES!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

MY wife found this place off of recommendation of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
Would have never stopped here based on outside appearance, however it was great! I had shrimp/scallop tacos and they were right on target. Hot salsa and chips were tasty. We were on a long road trip home from LA to MS, but if ever in the region would definitely make this stop again. rate 4.5

Great chile, great service, love those local dives! It looks funky, but it's worth it. The food is great, friendly people, and prompt service.
